At Sequence Wellness our naturopathic doctors practice as personal health researchers. Our patients come in looking for answers (often after the typical health care system has left them confused and with questions unanswered), and we do the intensive intake, lab testing, and nutritional calculations required to accurately determine the root cause of what is contributing to their health concerns.
Many of our patients are thrilled even by the end of our first appointment, even before a proper treatment plan has been rolled out. They are happy because we have listened! We have thoroughly heard what they have to say, and we’ve dug deeper to get to the nooks and crannies of their case so that we can effectively figure out how all of their symptoms are connection, what the root cause actually is.
At the end of the first visit we do a structured review of the patient’s case, so that they see the big picture of how everything ties together. We then usually provide the patient with requisitions for appropriate lab testing, likely a nutrient calculation tool, and a preliminary plan to get the ball moving while we await the test results. In our second visit we review all of the relevant information and put together a comprehensive plan.
Our patients leave our care well informed about their health and feeling better. This is a more important goal than only focusing on symptom relief because when people know what “healthy” feels like, they quickly notice when things are falling out of whack, and therefore do the assessment and treatment needed in the rapid timeline which allows for long-term disease prevention.

Naturopathic Doctors are keen researchers of your underlying health architecture. Our practice is data-driven, so we want to learn as much about your case as possible, including an extensive intake (which can be up to 1.5 hours), as well as order any lab testing to determine the root cause of your concern. Please upload any past laboratory results to your patient portal, and have your current supplements/medications with you to allow for a complete intake.
The second visit is usually 45 minutes in length and is where we can compile all of the data (lab test results, nutrient calculations, etc) and put it together into a proper plan.
Most follow-up visits are 30 minutes and act as a check in to make sure we can on track and to make tweaks to the plan. If it has been over a year since your last visit, or if an entirely new health concern has arisen, please book yourself in for a 45 or 60 minute appointment so that we have ample time to get the full picture of your current case.
